Pain in my right Testical. It comes and goes all week and sometimes the left one is sore.What could be wrong. Iv had no injury to my testicals?

My urgent take ...: Your clinical scenario strongly suggests you're experiencing intermittent right testicular torsion (twist) and detorsion (untwist). So, go to local ER ASAP to be checked out. Dx for such largely relies on Hx and CT or US usually does not help at all. A man of 17 with a Hx of highly variable onset, degree, duration, interval, evolution, & progress of testicular pain should warn any professional to. ...Read more

Consult doctor: This isn't common but the severity of it depends on your age, med hx, etc. Consult your general doctor or urologist as soon as possible. The hard area on the scrotal sac may have nothing to do with the pain or may be an infection. Testicular pain can lead to permanent damage of the testicle. ...Read more

My husband is 30 years old. Last night he has pain in his right testicle. Today it is very sore. What could be the causes of this?

? Inflammation : Sudden testicular pain in the absence of trauma should be aggressively investigated if the pain persists for beyond a short time. Torsion(twisting) of the testicle is very painful and is a surgical emergency if the testicle is to be possibly saved. Epididymidis or inflammation of the epididymis is another cause that might respond to antibiotics. He should see a urologist as soon as possible. ...Read more
